I guess Rush fans are every bit as bored as U2 fans right now, so they are invading and trolling.

U2 hold the record for largest audience, had the fastest-selling tour under Paul McCartney and have won best live act in countless magazine's countdowns, lists, and polls.
Rush were mentioned on some of those-- but in the 30s and 40s. not the #1 spot. And to me that is more official than any of your opinions that you consider fact.

A funny little story about this very topic:
I watched my friend's Rush in Rio dvd at a party once and we ended up putting in The Vertigo Milan DVD after two songs into the Rush one....and everyone there liked the U2 one a lot more. We even had people saying "I never liked U2...but they are really good live!" (We also watched the Clapton 'One More Car/Rider" and Bowie's "A Reality Tour 2004" and everyone liked those a lot more than the Rush DVD- Even my friend who was a huge Rush fan.)

P.S. Why so defensive Moggio?! You asked our opinions and you are getting them!

What about the voice of Geddy Lee? How did it get so high? I wonder if he speaks like an ordinary guy...

I never said they did.


apparently you can't understand a thing anyone says here and think maybe we may have a point.

Please go back to school and read up on what opinons and facts are and then come back here and have 2 sided discussion cuz u are certainly not expressing nor doing that here.

he's not asking for our opinions cuz he doesn't seem to know what opinions are as opposed to facts.

It doesn't have to. Because what I said above in the last part of my second to last post, is FACTUAL.
Moggio YOU ROCK!!! Nice to see someone put aside their fanboy-ism and TELL IT LIKE IT IS!

For the record, I'm NOT a Rush fan-boy. U2 is my FAVORITE BAND.

I just think Rush is JUST AS GOOD.

The are the greatest 3 piece on EARTH. No one can argue that.

I guess U2's only better because they have a front man who does nothing and plays a guitar in concert that you can't even hear.

Rush was that prog rock band that was cool to listen to when you were stoned in friend's basement back in the late 70's right?
